We should apply the user's chosen referer policy to In other words, if a url has a blank referer, we should clear out for that window. With even the default referer policy, this will have the effect of wiping between user-entered URLs.

This mechanism is also handy because it is currently impossible in XPCOM to distinguish user-entered URLs from javascript redirects of document.location.

Decided to knock this one out because the code was just staring me in the face and it was like a 3 line fix.

I tested with and it is unable to keep filled with session vars if you just hit enter in the urlbar. It also blocks entirely if you have disabled referers (which I think is what someone who disables referers probably wants).
